IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services

IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services is a platform for the management and deployment of analytical assets. It provides extensive support as predictive models are prepared, validated and integrated with operational systems to support decision-making.

  • Overview
  • Collaborate
  • Automate
  • Deploy
  • System Requirements

Gain Greater Impact from Analytics
Securely manage diverse analytical assets and foster greater collaboration among those developing and using them. Automate and integrate ongoing analytical processes for more reliable results. And ensure that the right people get the information they need to take timely, appropriate action.

Collaboration

Collaboration is the key to developing and implementing analytics across the enterprise. IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services makes it possible to share and re-use assets efficiently, protect them in ways that meet internal and external compliance requirements, and publish results so that a greater number of business users can view and interact with results.

Automation

Automation enables your organization to make analytics a core component of daily decision-making processes. You can construct flexible analytical processes that can be operationalized, ensuring consistent results. You also have the tools you need to govern analytical environments just as you manage other business processes.

Deployment

Deployment bridges the gap between analytics and action by enabling organizations to operationalize analytics – embedding analytic results in front-line business processes. Linkage between IBM Collaboration and Deployment Services and other IBM SPSS products like Decision Management supports the automation of recommendations and tactical decisions. Integration with your existing infrastructure, using standard programming tools and interfaces, makes combining these technologies efficient for IT to deploy and manage and also eases the learning curve for end users.


Collaboration

  • Share analytical assets among analysts
    • Store in a central repository
    • Make it easy to organize and search for content
    • Enable reuse and standardization for effective analytical results
  • Protect the business by storing analytical assets in a central location, controlling access and tracking changes
    • Use version control and object labels to ensure the right copies are being used in production processes
    • Easily backup and restore all analytical assets in one step



Share Protect Publish
IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services allows analysts and business users to work together and share critical business information more easily. It protects the business by storing analytical assets in one place, and automatically tracking changes made to them. Analysts can easily publish information, allowing business users easy access to it when they need it.

Share - Protect - Publish



  • Analysts can publish information easily from within their analytic tools, and give analytical power to business users to use when they need it
    • Analysts can develop custom interfaces that run analytical processes and make it easy for business users to run pre-defined analytics -- giving more people greater control over how they access and use analytics
    • Business users can use these interfaces and processes via a Web browser to generate their own analytical output

Automation – IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services Automation Service

  • Construct flexible, analytical processes that deliver consistent results
    • Use a visual interface to design complex analytical jobs that include multiple steps and tools
    • Jobs can include logic to handle different scenarios and parameters – which gives users greater flexibility and control over analytical processes
  • Operationalize the analytical processes by initiating jobs when they are needed
    • Run jobs on demand, at a scheduled time or when triggered by other events
    • Integrate jobs with other processes
    • Orchestrate complex jobs across multiple systems and applications through event notification
  • Govern the environment in which the analytical processes occur, thereby increasing confidence in results
    • Evaluate models using a champion/challenger approach
    • Automate model evaluation and refresh to ensure relevant results
    • Allow rollback to a prior state, to protect valuable analytical assets
    • Automatically notify people or other processes
    • Build reports to monitor their success or failure
